5 yrs ago I sold my home without the mineral rights (seller reserved). My former neighbors just called last week and said something is not right the oil/gas company has sent a lease to the buyer of the property. After a week of phone calls, letters, emails and faxes the Title Co was pointing the finger at the realtor, the buyer would not return my calls and the realtor finally found my file friday morning. Friday night I was email by the realtor a quit claim deed from the buyer and is to be recorded on Monday morning. No one is saying who did what wrong regarding the minerals not being reserved at closing. Yes I got the mineral rights back but I feel someone should be held accountable for not doing their job, if my former neighbors would not have called I would have never known.
Should the Title Co who did the closing and/or the realtor be accountable for this mistake?
